    Tax Time Is ID Theft Season; Get Your Credit Report (NAPSI)Its tax time again. The Fed-eral Trade Commission notes that one-third of all ID theft complaints it receives are tax related, three times as large as any other type of ID theft. So tax season is a good time to review your personal fi nan-cial records and ensure they are accurate and there are no unknown or erroneous data in them. One record youll want to review is your credit report. It can alert you to ac-counts that might have been opened by ID thieves. You are entitled to a free annual copy of your credit report from each of the three nationwide credit bureaus: Equi-fax, Experian and TransUnion. Just go to

    Pratt. After you get your credit report, make sure all the accounts are yours. If you see one that you dont recognize or an account that has an error, contact the credit bureau. You can also contact the creditor or lender that provided the information to the credit bureau and let them know about the issue. In a number of situations, informa-tion you provide the credit bureau will be sent to the lender. The lender will verify whether the information is correct or not and then the credit bureau will notify you of the results. If theres information that needs to be updated, the credit bureau

    www.annualcreditreport.com to get your free report. The credit report gives consumers an excellent comprehensive overview of their outstanding credit obligations, says Stu-art K. Pratt, president and CEO of the Con-sumer Data Industry Association. While the lenders and credit bureaus have a num-ber of sophisticated security protocols in place to inhibit identity theft and fraud, there can still be instances where a crimi-nal with access to your personal informa-tionas in the IRS data breachcan re-sult in a problem. Monitor your fi nancial relationships. The credit report is one of the easiest and best ways to do that, notes (Continued on page 6 )

    5 ENTS WORTH by Grant Nichols Its A Matter Of Opinion...

    Guest ColumnistRate Hike

    -by Bob Perry

    The Federal Reserve announced mid-December that the new target benchmark rate will change from zero to between 0.25 and 0.50 percentage points. This hike is the fi rst since 2006 and so-far there is little evidence signifi cant rate changes in the mortgage market with Freddie Macs market survey revealing a slight up-tick of 30-year fi xed-rate mortgages from 3.93% to 3.96% in the latest two-week period. This is a sign that Fed Chair Janet Yellen and her advisors are moving away from stimulating the economy which is contrary to other central banks like Tokyo continu-ing to generate growth through economic stimulus. Any increases in the rate will be much smaller than the decreases we experienced in past years. The effects on the housing market will play out but we can expect the rates to remain at historic lows through most of 2016. The reasons why a rate in-crease at this time is justifi ed are some-what confusing. The GDP (Gross Domes-tic Product) for example is projected to be 1.3 for the fourth quarter with the fi rst quarter of 2016 to be even lower. A most important issue is the labor participation rate which is at 62.5% which is near the low some 38 years ago. The all-time high rate was 67.3% in 2000 and the all-time low was 58.1 in 1954. The non-govern-ment or civilian labor force participation

    rate is the total of unemployed looking for a job plus the employed as a percentage of the population over the age of 15. As of December 19th, the weekly claims for unemployment was still trending at a near the 42 year low and in itself is a clear sign that the bottom was reached as the labor force has been trimmed to the bone with the unneeded gone for some time. Note that some 2.2 million are still receiving unemployment benefi ts. Employers are facing increasing costs related to the re-porting, disclosure and notifi cation re-quirements of the ACA (Affordable Care Act) and expect some more trimming of marginal employee to cover the additional costs. The Cadillac Tax kicks in in 2016 and the unions that supported the ACA are regretting the inclusion of this tax which imposes more than a 25% increase on such plans. Surely plans to avoid the tax are being worked on as revisions are pos-sible with the infl uence peddling that goes on in Congress. It seems that business has yet to stabilize and has the FED made a preemptive move that it will regret as plans are to increase the rate a few times in 2016? We fi nd our-selves traveling on a economic road un-charted and the fi scal outcomes will not be what we have hoped for; a free economy and a free country.

    For those who might have missed the First Night Bradford 2016 event on New Years Eve, December 31st, and for those who were there but didnt have time to see and take part in all of the venues, this weeks Bradford Jour-nal including its associated photo gal-lery should be a real treat. While we could only run twenty photos on the pages of this issue, the gallery contains all the rest, along with a good number of videos taken during the various performances. Our apologies to the following people whose photos we could not include: Er-ica Brooks and her 6-year-old son Ryan, whose family was at the Byllye Lanes First Night First; John Hannahs whose brother-in-law and family were here from Columbus, OH, who were at the Callahan Skate Park; Jimmy Plowwe, Stephen Tin-gley, and Max Greenberg who were at the Callahan Skate Park; PJ McGarry and his family, Garrett Everson, Brook Everson, Lori Everson, and Cambria Everson who were at the Grace Lutheran Church mu-sical Venue; And Todd Wagner, a vocalist and entrepreneur, of the Enchante Caberet who performed at the First Presbyterian Church Social HallThis is what the latest band lineup looks like for the Vet Jam to be held at the Bradford Vets Club Events Center, January 16th: Dog Day Sunrise, Midnight Special, Vapor, Grave Dodgers, Counterfeit, Goodbye Dawn, Synner, and Marshmellow Overcoat. The latest listings for the featured acoustic acts during the same event are: Megan Prosser, Acoustic Brew Crew, Millie Hol-lebeke, No-Name Duo, Caitlin Cox, and Dave Morris. Best of all, the unbelievably low admission price for this all-day event is only $5.00, with proceeds going to the Pennsylvania Veterans Foundation..Over the years, weve noticed a serious problem with the road traffi c in general around Bradford. Its not a problem of having too much traffi c, or people driving too fast. Rather, its a problem of drivers going too slow or doing things with their automobiles that create danger-ous conditions. Along South Kendall Av-enue (Route 46) for example, in the four and a half mile stretch from the city line near East Main Street, Bradford, to Look-er Mountain Trail, where the speed limit ranges from 45 mph to 55mph, we often notice the following: A. Drivers back out from their driveways onto the highway, B. Drivers poke their way out from side streets onto the highway, and poke their way onto the side streets from the high-way, and C. drivers pull off the wrong side of the highway, after dark, and leave their headlights on giving the allusion to on-coming traffi c that a car is heading toward them in their lane.

    BUSINESS & PERSONAL FINANCES

    5 Ways To Be Charitable On A Budget -by Nathaniel Sillin

    If youve ever wondered if you can be charitable with only a few extra dollars in your wallet or a little bit of free time, the answer is yes. You just have to get a little creative. In the Chronicle of Philanthropys lat-est analysis of charitable giving, it appears people who earned less were giving more. Based on state-by-state tax data, the non-profi t industry trade publication reported that between 2006 to 2012, Americans earning more than $200,000 gave a small-er percentage of their income to charity while those earning less than $100,000 ac-tually gave more during the same period. Wherever you stand on the income scale, stretching charitable dollars or time should begin with a little planning. Here are fi ve steps to consider. 1. Check your fi nances fi rst. Help-ing others is a worthwhile lifetime habit. However, before you start writing checks or handing out cash to various individuals or groups, check your budget to determine whether you actually have extra money to spare for charitable donations in any form. If you itemize, check the IRS rules (www.irs.gov) on charitable giving or consult with a qualifi ed tax professional to see if there are charitable giving options that fi t your circumstances. 2. Screen charities youre considering. Its never been easier to evaluate a potential charity or nonprofi t organization. Lead-ing online databases like CharityNaviga-tor.org, CharityWatch.org and Guidestar.org provide extensive data on thousands of national, state and local charities and nonprofi t organizations. The Better Busi-ness Bureau also operates Give.org, a na-tional charity database that accredits and notes complaints. The U.S. Federal Trade Commissions Charity Scams website of-fers breaking news on illegal fundraising activities and best practices for evaluating charities and nonprofi ts year-round. What else can you do? Play reporter. Even if an organization checks out through these reputable sources, do an online search of news media just to make sure no unsavory developments have occurred that might discourage your donation. 3. Research whats needed. If the charity in question accepts physical items or volunteer work, see if youre interested in providing help that way. Check with the charity either online or by phone to deter-mine what they will and will not accept donating the wrong items simply wastes staff and volunteer time. If you would like to volunteer, ask about opportunities and make sure that volunteer assignment fi ts you before you commit. Remember, char-ities really count on their volunteers and

    your enthusiasm for an assignment can help them keep their turnover to a mini-mum. Some organizations may also have travel-based service missions that can pro-vide charitable travel opportunities that al-low you to help while seeing the world. 4. Ask if your employer will match your donation. Even if your cash dona-tion is modest, some employers can make your contribution go farther if they have a matching gifts program. Check with your human resources department or benefi ts manager. Also, many nonprofi ts, univer-sities and charitable organizations keep their own online databases of employer matching gift programs. 5. Go micro. If you can only fi nd a few dollars to give, dont let that discour-age you. Organize like-minded friends and family members to pool funds, at-tend events or volunteer time for a cause, or consider a particular nonprofi ts or-ganized crowdfunding (https://www.councilofnonprofits.org/tools-resources/crowdfunding-nonprofi ts) efforts that will allow you to make an impact with only a few dollars. Still short on cash and want to help? Pick up the phone or email the charity and ask if they accept small items or in-kind services. Some ideas might in-clude gift cards (including ones with un-used balances), offi ce supplies, stamps, catering for events or board meetings or help with writing, fundraising or technol-ogy. Bottom line: Making a difference in the

    world doesnt always require big bucks, but big know-how helps. Check your fi -nances fi rst, research charities youre in-terested in and investigate how small do-nations of time, money and physical items can make an impact.

    ON THE HEALTHY SIDE

    (NAPSI)According to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Pre-vention (CDC), chances are good youll get a cold or the fl u this year. Adults have an average of two to three colds per year and children have even more, while 5 to 20 percent of the population gets the fl u. Fortunately, there are steps you can take to minimize your risk and ease your symptoms. Consider these tips from Chlorasep-tic pharmacist spokesperson Maria Mantione: Get a fl u shot. The CDC recom-mends a fl u shot for everyone over the age of 6 months. Its easy to getjust talk to your pharmacist. Its the best way to prevent the spread of the fl u. It does not prevent the common cold, but the fl u is a devastating, serious illness that could put you out of commission for a week or more or, even worse, land you in the hospital with pneumonia or infect someone you love with a weaker immune systemsuch as babies, the elderly or those undergoing chemother-apy. Wash your hands often. Washing your hands with soap and water is the best way to prevent the spread of the common cold. Prevent illness by practicing healthy habits. Make sure to get enough sleep, eat a balanced, nutritious diet, exercise and minimize stress. If you do get sick, talk to your pharmacist about how to manage your symptoms with medications. Before cold season, stock your medicine cabi-net with the essentials. Stick to single-ingredient products, so you have what you need to treat your specifi c symp-toms. These include pain relievers and fever reducers, a decongestant, cough medicine, lozenges and a sore throat spray. Topical medications, such as Chloraseptic sore throat sprays and

    AICR HealthTalk-by Karen Collins, MS, RD, CDN

    American Institute for Cancer Research Q: How do pumpkin, winter squash and sweet potatoes compare nutrition-ally? What are healthy ways to prepare them? A: Pumpkin and winter squash (including acorn, butternut and hubbard) are in the same plant family, and their nutrient content is similar. As with sweet po-tatoes, the deep orange color of pumpkin and winter squash signals that they are very high in compounds called carotenoids. In laboratory studies, carotenoids function as antioxidants and aid in controlling cell growth, which could mean they help reduce cancer risk. Human studies link higher consumption of foods containing carotenoids with lower risk of some cancers. All three vegetables are also packed with potassium, which seems to promote good blood pressure con-trol. All are good sources of vitamin C, too, with sweet potatoes containing the highest amounts. Sweet potatoes are richer in natural sugars and starches than most vegetables, making them higher in calories. One-half cup of sweet potatoes has about 90 calories compared to 30 to 40 calories in one-half cup of pumpkin or winter squash. Many recipes with these vegetables include so much butter, margarine, sugar or syrup, they become quite high in calories. However, those additions are not necessary to enjoy their wonderful fl avor. For a quick-and-easy way to boost nutrients and color to your meal, add pured frozen or canned winter squash or pumpkin to soup, stew or even smoothies. (Just be sure the canned pumpkin is pure, unsalted pumpkin and not sweetened pumpkin pie mix.) Cubes of fresh squash, pumpkin or sweet potatoes are delicious in stir-fries and stews, and mix well with many different fl avor combinations. All three choices are also terrifi c roasted in the oven, either alone or with other vegetables, drizzled with just a bit of olive oil; and you can cook them by steaming as well.

    lozenges, are great to have on hand because theyre portable, can be used safely with other cold medicines and have very few side effects. In fact, Chloraseptic is the No. 1 sore throat relief brand around. It pro-vides fast-acting relief for sore throats and mouth pain to help you get through your day. From lozenges that soothe nasal pas-sages and suppress coughs to sprays that target pain when and where it hurts, theres a broad portfolio of products based on your preferences and needs. The lozenges have a soothing liquid center that relieves pain and cools na-sal passages. MAX Wild Berry is the strongest throat relief lozenge in the line. Chloraseptic Total offers a multi-symptom lozenge formula that can sup-press your cough for up to four hours. Chloraseptics sprays are the No. 1 pharmacist-recommended brand. The new and improved Cherry Spray tastes great, works on contact and is free of aspirin, sugar and gluten. The MAX Wild Berry Targeted Throat Spray is convenient for travel or to keep in your purse. The targeted spray makes it eas-ier when youre on the go to coat and protect specifi c areas in your mouth and throat. All these products are avail-able at mass retailers, major drugstores and grocery stores. Also helping to keep you ahead of the fl u this season is an online Cold + Flu tracker. To check for outbreaks and symptoms, go to www.chloraseptic.

    SENIOR INFORMATION PAGEHelping Older People To Maintain Independence (NAPSI)For most older adults, the ability to live independently is associated with the ability to drive. Thats one reason the prospect of eventually giving up the keys can be a frightening one. To help, the experts on aging at the Na-tional Association of Area Agencies on Aging (n4a) developed a brochure called Before You Give Up the Keys: Create a Roadmap for Transportation Independ-ence that may lessen those fears by em-powering older adults to evaluate their mobility needs, identify the transportation options in their community and develop a plan customized to their unique circum-stances. A too-familiar scenario is that older

    adults wait until theyre involved in some sort of emergency, like a traffi c accident, before they really think about their driving ability and the other transportation options available to them in their community, said n4a CEO Sandy Markwood. Our goal is to shed light on a critical issue that will likely affect most families with an older loved one who may need to limit or eliminate their driving, and to provide a catalyst for discussion, and hopefully, ac-tion, Markwood also noted. The n4a represents Americas national network of 623 Area Agencies on Aging (AAAs). It helps older adults and peo-ple with disabilities live with dignity and choices in their homes and communities for as long as possible.

    To that end, it created the Eldercare Locator. This serves as an essential, trust-ed gateway to help older adults, caregiv-ers and health professionals navigate the maze of aging programs and services, as well as to assist them in identifying and accessing the resources that match their needs best. The National Call Center oper-ates fi ve days a week from 9 a.m. to 8 p.m. ET and can be reached at 800-677-1116 or www.eldercare.gov. According to recent research by the Federal Transit Administration, the Na-tional Highway Traffi c Safety Administra-tion, n4a and the National Aging and Dis-ability Transportation Center, the rise in the 65-plus populationsome 45 million and growinghas triggered a correspond-ing spike in the number of nondrivers of more than 1.1 million between 2001 and 2009. This is a major issue for older adults because when they lack access to trans-portation, they cant get to the doctor, the grocery store or see friends and family as much, which means their overall well-being is likely to suffer, added Kathy Greenlee, Assistant Secretary for Aging. Free Brochure: To download the free brochure, go to www.n4a.org/fi les/Re-sourcesforOlderAdults.pdf. Reach the El-dercare Locator at www.eldercare.gov and (800) 677-1116.

Injury caused by wearing inap -propriate shoes can derail your fitness or weight loss goals, but investing in a proper shoe can help prevent foot and ankle damage while alsoallowing for a more comfortable workout. No matter your pursuit, there is a shoe that fits the need, including running shoes with built-in shockabsorbers, lightweight walking shoes, thick-soled high top basket ballshoes or cross-training shoes, which can be utilized during a variety of workouts.

    Supplement Your GoalsWhen diet and exercise alone arent enough, supplements such as proteinand fish oil, can be effective in helping you achieve your New Years res -olution. Whether you want to lose weight or gain muscle mass, there is a supplement out there to aid you in your pursuit of a toned body. Thesesupplements, which should be approved by your health care providerbefore use, are available at local retailers such as grocery stores, phar -macies and specialty health and wellness stores.

    Be patient. Starting a new fitness regime can be a chal -lenge. There will be ups and downs, but remainingcommitted is key.

    Exercise on a regular basis. Regular physical activity notonly helps you look and feel better, it can improve mood,increase quality of sleep and help you manage weight.

    Undergo an annual physical. To be sure your body isrunning smoothly, have your numbers, including bloodpressure, blood sugar, cholesterol and weight, checkedregularly.

    Drink lots of water. Experts recommend 64 ouncesof water a day to help replenish what youve lostthroughout the day.

    Eat plenty of fruits and vegetables. Both fruits and veggies are loaded with vitamins, minerals andantioxidants, which help protect against chronicdiseases.

    Go through your cabinets. Get rid of foods that arehigh in sodium, fat or sugar and look for low sodium,fat or sugar items instead.
